Looking at what you want.....Hmmmmm.
Computer graphics exceds HDTV specs even with a $60 vga card.
So a XP PC with a good VGA card will do.
"I need an a/v component style case" Don't know of any.
There are rackmont PC cases that are black.
You may want to think about building your own. This would keep the cost low and you would only put in what you need. John
I have installed a network storage drive on my home network and wish to connect a number of low cost media players (MP3, JPEG & MPEG files). Because I don't wish to install server software on another computer, these players will need Windows XP with media player or Windows XP Media Center software installed on them.
Since the systems will be installed in a living room setting, I need an a/v component style case. The system would need relatively high resolution graphics but not HD quality. Similar systems available have high price tags and/or advanced features such as TV tuner cards that I don't need.
Does anyone know if such a system is available?
